Holding the switch does not always work. The problem is that the Garmin batteries wear out very quickly and if you don't charge them every few days they drain completely and the voltage drops to zero. The problem is the brilliant Garmin engineers designed the Nuvi 700s so that the charging circuit doesn't activate when you plug it in if the battHolding the switch does not always work.

Also, even if you replace the battery, if the new battery is not already charged, you are in the same boat! I solved it by taking the Nuvi apart and zapping the battery with 5 volts across the red and black terminals. It's very difficult because the plug has tiny holes smaller than a typical pin. You have to be very careful too because the lithium polymer battery could catch on fire or explode! I used a very low current to lessen the chance of this. After doing this for about a minute and raising the battery voltage to about 3 volts, I plugged it back in, put it back together, and it was able to charge.

Won,t turn when plugged into car.cigarete lighter has power,fuse is good in garmin unit


Check the cable that plugs into the unit itself. It possibly is damaged and will not acknowledge the GPS. Try replacing the car charger/ac adapter. Check NewPower99.com. they have a lot of inventory and great pricing. Good Lucl!

Hello,

Your units powered cradle has probably died out, this is very common with the 7xx series, see if you have a friend or someone that has the 7xx cradle you could try. But it is a very common issue, if you do need a replacement one can be obtained from here http://www.gpscity.ca/garmin-nuvi-700-series-cradle-replacement.html

Hope this helps!

Hello,

nuvis can be very particular about which 3rd party accessories they will take, try obtaining a garmin 12v power cable this should fix your problem.

Hope this helps!

Garmin nuvi 770. unable to get past map update


I had this problem too. It was because I plugged in my garmin to my computer with the wrong usb cord. After realizing my lame error, I plugged it in with the right usb cord, but it was still locked up. I kept it plugged in, and reset it. After that it worked with no problems.

Screen froze and it won't turn off


Hmmm. tricky. It'll eventually run flat but connect it to the computer and use Garmin WebUpdater (free download from Garmin) to check the software version - it may reinstall the software.

Our Garmin Nuvi was working until we stopped the car.


I've had this happen on three successive Nuvi 760's which I sent back, the serial numbers all suggested that they came from the same production batch..

Eventually I got a Nuvi 770 which has been fine. I understand that it's not a problem with the basic design as the 770 is really just a 760 with more memory, but it's probably a fault with a batch of components used during a production run.

This is not a DIY repair; contact Garmin even if your unit is out of warranty as they might offer a goodwill repair for free or at reduced cost.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 770 that won't "speak" when navigating


Frequently (about 20% of the time) when I have my Nuvi 770 plugged in, in the car and I turn it on, it gets stuck at the start up screen where it says, “Loading maps” I wait several minutes and it never completes. Then I turn it off and turn it back on and it comes right up, but with no voice. When I go to Tools > Setup > Language it shows no language and I cannot select one. I have to plug my Nuvi 770 into the computer, run web updater, it detects that I already have the software loaded and I select the option to download it again. When it has completed, I unplug the Nuvi and then go to Tools > Setup > Language and select American English.

NO SOUND ON GARMIN 750


I had the same problem. I fixed it by going to settings, then to language, and then entering American English into the Voice category. Hope this helps.
